BACKGROUND The reliable diagnosis rate of diagnostic tests is provided by their intervals with acceptable accuracy (e.g. >/=90%) where a liver biopsy can be avoided. AIMS To evaluate the overall accuracy and improve the reliable diagnosis rates of blood tests for significant liver fibrosis. METHODS Five blood tests were compared with Metavir fibrosis (F) staging in 1056 patients with chronic hepatitis C. RESULTS Area under the receiver operating characteristics (F0-1 vs. F2-4) were… CONTINUE READING
